While it may not be as popular as, say, Slacker or Pandora, SiriusXM is and has been for a while a pretty solid internet radio app for Android. Downloaded more than a million times from Google Play, SiriusXM has just been updated to a new version and the improvements promise to take the app to the next level.
The most important upgrade is the ability to “go back in time up to 5 hours to hear previously aired programming on most channels”. In other words, you have a pretty impressive 5-hour music or talk buffer for channels offered by SiriusXM, which is not exactly a feature you can find everywhere.
Other cool stuff you can do with SiriusXM 188.8.131.52 include [...]

Some say high school is the most fulfilling time of one’s life, while others think it’s all about survival. Growing up isn’t easy, especially when you realize that there is a high school waiting for you.
A few years back, it would have been a nuisance to do research work with the available resources, which weren’t much to talk about (imagine a life without Wikipedia).

If one of your high school best friends has an Android device, then it’s about time you learn the meaning of the phrase, “What are friends for?”

10 million downloads? Pfft. How about 50 million downloads in just 35 days? That’s more like it.
That happens to be the number of downloads that Angry Birds Space has accumulated within 35 days of being launched into space. So, what’s next for the temperamental bunch of fowls? Rovio took yesterday to their website and Twitter account to thank gamers for the fantastic reception and to announce the historic milestone, which breaks the Finns’ previous records.
The game developers teased us by saying that there’s “something even bigger on its way!” That’s a pretty vague statement to be speculate about, so, instead, enjoy the 10 new levels of Angry Birds [...]
So, you think that your grandma who you only see once a year at Christmas is talkative?
Here’s a thing about the apps on your Android smartphones that you don’t know – they’re even chattier!
